limit is a sign of leadership failure, it's a sign that the u.s. government can't pay its own bills, it's a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government's reckless fiscal policies. leadership means that the buck stops here. instead, washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today on the backs of our children and grandchildren, therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase america's debt limit. in 2008, candidate obama blamed president bush and called the growing debt unpatriotic. >> number 43 added 4 trillion dollars by his lonesome so that we now have over 9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back, $30,000 for every man, woman and child, that's irresponsible. it's unpatriotic. >> mike: unpatriotic. 9 trillion dollars in debt 2008. we're 16 1/2 trillion dollars in debt today. all right. joining me now, former house speaker newt gingrich. mr. speaker, great having you with me tonight. [applause] >> good to be with you, governor. i must say that was a terrific lead-in and one i kind of wish the
tamp down on government overreach, you know, in obama's inauguration speech, it was all about growing government even bigger than it already is. and the problem is, when government grows, the private sector suffers. and if you say, well, who cares where the money goes, the problem is government growth is always less inefficient than private sector growth and this is one step toward hopefully allowing the private sector to grow, tamping down on unions which i think have hurt many, many, many industries, despite the higher wages. in the union you have higher wages until you lose your job, and i think this is a step forward, this is progress, what needs to be done. >> brenda: you know, jonas, toby brought up a good point. which is that union membership has been declining for decades, record lows right now. so, what difference does all of this make? the unions don't have as much power. does this make all that much difference to jobs? >> i'll go off what the guest just said. if this were true the unemployment rate wouldn't be so high right now. the union rates the lowest level of all times
pioneer and activist committed suicide because the government was coming after him. amazing new information about that. we're going to have his lawyer on the show to talk about it. >> i know this case was weighing heavily on his mind and a significant source of stress for him. >> yes he stole information but it was not worth what they were putting him through. >> cenk: turns out that the government might have another reason because schwartz might be a wikileaks source. it's go time. [ ♪ theme ♪ ] >> cenk: multiple people have been shot at a school in houston, texas. >> shots fired at the loan star college, multiple shots fired at this college and that at least four people have been shot. >> i heard so much like a guy got shot in the legs. i don't know if somebody got killed. >> this government infringes on our second amendment right, we will do everything we can to push back against that. >> the crowd erupted in applause when governor perry even alluded to arming texas teachers. >> we've got to bring everything to the table and protect our children. >> the school is under co
? >> i would say little to nothing. i mean, you had a little bit of throat clearing about how government can't be the answer to every problem but it was a bold, strong progressive push. i think he learned a lesson were last time where he came in 2009 and tried to hold the g.o.p.'s hand and get something done but then got zero from the house in his stimulus bill. it's time to convince people, push ahead with your agenda and let the republicans do what they will. >> do you think we'll see this happen in the next 18 months. it does seem that the president learned something in the last four years. keep in mind the president said it's time to end on focusing on childish things. he said we need to stop the political name calling but the president is much more realistic, he understands that there are people who want to battle him on every issue. and the president was essentially rallying his base, liberals women african-americans, gay, latinos, look, we have big fights coming. in order to honor you i need you to honor me by working together in for the collective good and by the way we'll have s
. the details are in, senator diane fine sign is laying out the plan. and guess who gets a pass? government officials, we report, you decide. >> tucker: it could be a super bowl, why they want to go no booze at all during the biggest game of the year. >> right. >> clayton: and plus we showed you the half court hero, the incredible shot tackled by lebron. >> and half court hooker, he probably enjoyed the hug by lebron. >> and now tackled by taxes, and make $75,000, see if he gets to keep any of it. >> "fox & friends" begins right now. ♪ >> good morning, i hope you had a great weekend. >> clayton: yeah, ainsley earhart here, tucker carlson, ainsley fresh off the return to the gun range down there in texas. >> that was so fun. >> clayton: did you fire an a-47. >> no. >> were you nervous? >> i was down in katy, texas, offering free classes to teachers in the area. the class full of teachers and we interviewed why they were doing that and even though you're not allowed to take guns in flarms yet and hoping that does pass the state of texas. >> you looked great down there and we'll talk more a

have change being a grassroots entity but it has to have a component of the state and government to help foster it, and the line that really stuck out to me was these truths can be self-evident but they're not self-executing. what he made was a case for why there is an important role for the government to play to basically protect our rights but also to advance us as a society whether it's on climate change, immigration reform, bank regulations, and so on down the list. it was a progressive case but it wasn't necessarily the big government case. >> let's talk about some examples. i think you know them. the right wing ideas of rights is leave me alone, i got enough guns here in this house to hold you off for a couple days anyway if the government comes in with helicopters. progressives' idea of rights is couple young people would like to go to the university of mississippi tp it took the federal troops to go in there to get them in the door. a governor named george wallace tried to stop people at the door at the university of alabama, they had to be pushed aside. that's an aggress
that is the federal budget. we have seemed to have an obsession with government bookkeeping. this is a rigged game, and it is the wrong game for us to play. >> and in a barely veiled reference to mitt romney and other republicans, jindal said republicans need to make it clear that they are a, quote, populous party. >> we must quit being -- we are not the party of big business, big banks, big wall street bailouts, big corporate looph e loopholes, or big anything. we must not be the party that simply protects the welloff, so they can keep their toys. >> nbc's senior political editor, mark murray is here, and he joins me now. and mark, it seems is if at any time a party gets thumped, they always have this come to jesus moment. we need to change what we've been doing before, we need to radically alter our strategy. reince priebus is going to say this to the rnc. "it's time to stop lacking at elections through the lens of battleground states. we have four years until the next presidential election, and being a blue state is not a permanent diagnosis. simple outreach a few months before an election wil
yesterday with secretary of state clinton was that america is dealing with nations whose own governments are in a shambles. and yet people like conservative chris stevens thought itthe bes way to make progress was to be there. you say we have to have relationships with these nations, but if those governments are in such a shambles, what's the alternative. how do we resolve that? >> i'm glad you raised those points. i know a lot of not only military personnel who are very brave but state department personnel who are very brave and yet when they take risks and when a benghazi consulate is overrun, we consider that fundamentally unacceptable. it is a terrible tragedy, but it is part of the risk in this world of being in places where you need to be when situations are not always stable. now, to your point about whether all governments can be worked with or cooperated with, of course, there are some governments that just aren't even trying or are in ka hoocah against us. but in a place like libya, i think the real issue is how do we get that young government get on its feet. it's generally we
our administration and our government fire someone whose gross actions left four people deeddead in benghazi. >> cenk: i believe this is called grandstanding and politics too. that's what is happening. quick, guys, who is damaged more by this, hillary clinton or the republicans. >> i think clinton escapes, and putting off this testimony to after the election. she's on her way out. she was able to get a lot of love from the democrats there. she's off and it will be brought up again and again and again by the right that's for sure. >> cenk: lindsay, quick thought? >> well, you know it is playing politics with this tragedy and i mean, i think hillary clinton gave great testimony today and defended her position. in her defense i mean, george tenant who was at the helm at the worst intelligence failure of our time and then led us into iraq with faulty intelligence. he never had this kind of grilling. he got a presidential medal of freedom in 2004. >> cenk: i remember when the republicans were outraged about that. no, i don't because that never happened. lindsay moran and michael hasti
and not the afghan government. >> it is owned by the afghan government. it is the u.s. pentagon that has been pumping to open to foreign sectors and pushing bringing in foreign companies companies like exxon and cheveron that have said they want to invest in afghanistan but thus far have not. >> john: it seems like the taliban's greatest threat to their power potential by might be foreign investment rather than attorney troops. what does the taliban have to gain by committing acts of violence against these drilling locations? >> i'm not sure if it's the biggest threat against the taliban but it has drawn their attention. as the u.s. government has increased it's interest in afghanistan's oil and gas what i experienced and what i found was that so, too was the taliban, and i think the taliban is attacking oil and gas targets and seeing it as a lightening rod for their attention. because they want to deny the power of having that resource would bring to the karzai government to the u.s. government to local warlords and regional leaders who they oppose. and basically they want to deny control of this re
response from the state department. the libyan government. so i saw firsthand what ambassador pickering and former chairman mullen called "timely and exceptional coordination." no delays in decision-making no denials of support from washington or from our military and i want to echo the review board's praise for the valor and courage of our people on the ground especially the security professionals in benghazi and tripoli. the board said the response saved american lives in real time and it did. the very next morning, i told the american people that heavily-armed militants assaulted our compound. and i vowed to bring them to justice. and i stood with president obama in the rose garden as he spoke of an act of terror. it's also important to recall that in that same period, we were seeing violent attacks on our embassies in cairo tunis khartoum as well as large protests outside many other posts where thousands of our diplomats served. >> she's doing good! >> i ordered a review around the world with particular scrutiny for high-threat posts. i asked the department of defense to join intera

is going to govern in his second term, those lines provide a really important clue. he was strong and he made this really important point; that he will not abandon the poor or the vulnerable or the marginalized. president obama said that social security and medicaid and medicare do not make us weak as a nation do not make us a nation of takers. those things they make us stronger as a nation. the president and we he said we cannot rest until all americans, all children, all people know matter their circumstances, all of us give meaning to that declaration of independence that we are all created equal. that's what this speech was all about. it was about us. we the people who can determine the destiny of this country, rich and poor, black and white, gay and straight every single one of us. powerful, and empowering. joining us from washington to discuss which issues and the theme of today's inauguration by president obama is bill press, host of "full court press," author of machine: the lies, distortions and personal attacks on the president and who's behind them," and

, bloated government, and now medicare is saying, oh, we don't know how to recuperate the funds. we don't have the tools or database, so it's just frustrating and disappointing to see the government throw away our money. >> there was a story about a year or so ago where the irs was sending checks to inmates that didn't deserve checks as well. >> exactly. what this shows is that washington isn't really serious about fixing our debt issue. because medicare is one of the biggest driving forces of our long-term national debt. if they were serious they would try to eliminate this waste and fraud, and what is frustrating is for young people like me, who we pay into the system, we're funding it, and the money isn't being saved for us. it's being spent right now. so not only are we paying for a program that is unsustainable, but the government is spending our money and giving it to people who don't deserve it. >> $120 million, people are saying, what's 120 million when the government spends $2.3 trillion. you have to start somewhere. >> exactly. all these things add up. a little waste in this d

privileged, selective use of government and public moneys to save selected group of people and allow other people, particularly the millions with the homes foreclosed to fend for themselves and the market rally, not just today but the markets doing extremely well over the past months, it kind of depend. great if you're in the markets and right if you have a 401(k) you are in the market but most people don't have a 401(k). many people do. >> when we talk about his legacy, is it really going to be the phrase to big too fail? >> i think that's what's stuck to him right now. whatever sticks to someone in realtime, you know, may or may not -- >> perception is reality. >> but only reality for the time that it's reality. meaning, truman went out of office with the lowest public approval ratings of man kind and what history says about timothy geithner we leave to the future in that it's clear there's systemic stability. we can debate about whether or not we are where we are want to be and going to go where we want to go. but i think it's very difficult to make the argument we're worse off today th
through egypt ushering in a new government and setting that country on a path to democracy, things could hardly be more chaotic. the last 24 hours have been some of the bloodiest since the start of the revolution, claiming 41 lives over the last two days. a day after nine people died in antigovernment street dmon strastra demonstrations in cairo 32 were killed today rooted in the country's still deep political division. we've been in the thick of some of those protests and start off tonight from cairo. good evening. >> reporter: good evening, lester. you were here two years ago and saw the scenes back then. this was a country united behind one goal, to topple the dictator hosni mubarak but two years on this country is divided, polarized and for the first time many people here fear the violence is actually threatening the country's very stability. the chaotic moments when anger turned deadly. outside the city's jail, dozens were killed as protesters tried to storm it to free prisoners who minutes earlier were sentenced to death in cairo. 21 defendants were convicted for their part in a so
cut spending. if that means shut down the government, shut down the government. >> i think in williamsburg we saw one possibility, which was paul ryan and others within the republican party saying to the caucus, we can't win this fight publicly. let the debt ceiling go because we're going to be blamed for the economic fallout. let's push that down the road kick the can down the road, as they say, and try to get some budget out of the senate and try to get some real spending cuts in the next three months. so paul ryan and others within the caucus are seeing a longer game here than is this freshman senator from texas. >> but if you ask paul ryan what he wants to do on gun control, he would say, i don't want to do anything on gun control. you've talked to moderate republicans -- >> what about registration? >> the only thing they might do is something on registration. >> background checks. >> that's it. no idea that you're banning weapons. no chance. >> registration is the worst. >> put it on tape. 5 0% chance it passes. >> good because hunters need 30 bullets
of its effect, not only on that four but other eight governing agencies as well. >> well, the game is not over. this is not the end of the line. it will be appealed and likely go on to higher courts. constitutionally conservatives will argue that they're restricting the power of the president, the same way if the republican does it, he'll be restricted either. this will go on to another court and they could see it very differently. >> cenk: you know, michael i'm really worried about the consequences if they do not see it differently. >> i read the ruling today and it's doll and i'm droll and i'm not good at reading legal documents but it depends on when they go to recess or when it's in adjournment, and it's wonky stuff. >> cenk: please tell me more. >> here we go, let's say they get everything they want. the supreme court passes all the judicial muster it needs to, they could conceivably go in and undo all the work that has been done. >> cenk: the court would go back and say everything you did to try to protect us from the banks is now invalid. so the banks on wall street have got
how to fight president obama, where to compromise, and hoto develop their own positive governing agenda, going forward. >> >> geraldo: president obama will be appearing with hillary clinton tomorrow on "60 minutes." >> a few years ago, it would have been seen as improbable because we had that very long, hard primary campaign. but, you know, i have gone around the world on behalf of the president and our country. one of the things that i say to people because i think it helps them understand, i say, look, in politics and in democracy, sometimes you win elections, sometimes you lose elections. i worked very hard. but i lost and then president obama asked me to be secretary of state. and i said yes. >> geraldo: what do you figure, bill kristol -- that appearance as president obama tilting toward hillary in 2016? or just thanking her for her hard work on behalf of his administration? >> i think tharching her, it's nice to see them, you know, tig the bow on four years of working together. but look, the cold judgment's going to be about whether the foreign and international security po
question is who does he choose in a coalition to govern with? the smart money is on him lining up with even more hard-line parties to his right which, of course, is the nightmare scenario for palestinians. or he could surprise everyone and team up with a more centrist bloc, and that would probably give him more wiggle room, at least that's what the analysts are saying, to deal with the stalled peace talks and what israelis are calling a tanking economy. and the horse trading begins as early as tomorrow morning. mara? >> and let's turn, if we can, to elsewhere in the region to syria where russia is sending planes to lebanon to evacuate citizens from the region. now, what kind of sign does that send to assad's government in syria? >> reporter: well, that's a very good question. first of all, the russian government's making this look like an evacuation, a short-term evacuation, only for those who want to leave the region. but russian officials are underscoring that, you know, there are tens of thousands of russians living and working in syria. it's their former client state. russia has a warm-
fire in brazil. the president of egypt has declared a state of emergency in three city anti-government demonstrations are raging in the cities of port said suez and ismalia and battling protestors in cairo as allen pizzey reports. >> reporter: riot police fought back against protestors in central cairo exactly two years after protests there lead to the overthrow of hosni mubarak. the rallying cry now is that after only 200 days in office o president mohammed morsi must go. o upon onlies accuse morsist-- morsi an his muslim brotherhood party of not delivering economic reforms and living up to pledges to represent all egyptians. none of the goals of the revolution we made have been achieved. there no bread no freedom no dignity. president morsi went on state tv to announce a 30 day state of emergency and an overnight curfew in three egyptian cities. in one of them port said riots for dozens killed yesterday brought at least four more dead dozens wounded and more than 400 suffered from tear gas inhalation according to hospital spokesmen. hundreds of mass rioters stormed and set fire to a
the debt limit and whether we continue to fund the government at the current spending levels. then he's going to try to do gun control. you look broadly and say something's changed with the public. i think that's true. you see some movement towards more support for gun control. >> let's talk specifics. let's go through each of these as we go throughout the next four years. you tell me what you think can actually be accomplished and what really has no chance at all. let's go first to the gun control legislation and the specific goals of the president. lawmakers on sunday talk shows, the hot topic once again. they offered a glimpse on how difficult it might be to get gun reform passed through congress. listen up. >> what i don't sthi constructive is what the president is doing right now which is within minutes of that horrible tragedy in newtown. the president began trying to exploit that tragedy, to push a gun control agenda that is designed to appeal to part zanz, designed to appeal to his political partisans. number one, it would have done zero to prevent the crime in newtown. number
by the government are one size fits all, any government determination of an individual's abilities must be based on a bureaucratic assessment of the lowest possible denominator. i think that's exactly what we have done in response to these mass shootings. solving this problem is something the government, bureaucratically knows it can't really do and offers up the bureaucratic solutions that don't really address any of the existential problems here and maybe not doesn't matter what politically possible or what's popular but what should actually be done. >> well, i strongly agree. i think what's the point of what i'm writing. right now, you have a host of democrats who do not appear to be voting on their conscience. they're voting on electoral, you know, the fear of electoral politics. >> right. >> in this sin stance, that's not supported. i don't know the right answer. i'm from the west. i, you know, know plenty of people with guns. i don't have visceral opposition to people owning firearms. >> right. >> but i think that senators should make up their minds based on the substance of policy and tha
him to this day. >> yes. >> maybe a signal about what is to come in terms of the governing fights in washington. >> absolutely. it is quite likely that there will be some give and some compromise. but he is creating a bottom line here beyond which he will not go. and that is a very strong signal for these budget fights to come. but writ more broadly, i was thinking of martin luther king jr. and of equal rights and of the refrain that, you know, our job is not done, what he basically was saying is our journey is not complete, to use his words. >> our journey is not complete. those are the two repeated phrases. our journey is not complete, and you and i as citizens, you and i. >> exactly. this is an exclusive moment. our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are recognized as equal under the law. he is talking about doma, the supreme court argument to come. he is surrounded by the supreme court right this. and he talked about stonewall. ta talking about stonewall in an inaugural address, i was really profoundly moved by that. this is not just saying okay, these
